Boxeo Telemundo wins boxing ratings war

Deporte Telemundo’s “Boxeo Telemundo” capped off the 2012-13 season as the number one boxing program in Spanish-language TV averaging 325,000 total viewers, according to Nielsen. Compared to its prior season, “Boxeo Telemundo” maintained an average of 163,000 adults 18-49, while Unimas’ “Solo Boxeo” and Azteca America’s “Boxeo Azteca” declined by 5 and 16 percent respectively. Telemundo’s popular boxing show, which showcases some of the best and most promising Latin boxers in the world, also garnered more than double the audience obtained by “Boxeo Azteca” in total viewers. “Boxeo Telemundo’s” highest rated telecast of the season came on June 28 as Vicente “El Loco” Mosquera defeated Cosme Rivera in Kissimmee, Florida, averaging nearly half a million total viewers (476,000 P2+) and 243,000 adults 18-49.

“Boxeo Telemundo”, the longest running boxing show in Spanish-language television, featured a total of 13 fights during its 2012-2013 season. Rene Giraldo called the action alongside Jessi Losada and Karim Mendiburu from Mexico City, Kissimmee and Tampa.

Arthur Abraham open workout

Photo: Nordphoto

Arthur Abraham (37-4, 28 KOs) feels comfortable before his upcoming fight on October 26! At today’s public workout at the Famila Einkaufsland, the biggest mall in Oldenburg, the former world champion and opponent Giovanni De Carolis (20-4, 10 KOs) showed that there will be a fight at hand this upcoming Saturday.

“It’s good to be back in Oldenburg”, said WBO Intercontinental Champion Abraham, who will not only risk his belt but also his mandatory spot to WBO Super Middleweight World Champion Robert Stieglitz. “I had my initial world title defense at middleweight at the EWE ARENA in 2006. The people here are always excited about a good fight, which I want to offer them this weekend.” With those fond memories on his mind, Abraham fired-off some quality combinations to the pads of his coach Ulli Wegner.

The people in attendance could also witness an intense workout by De Carolis. The man from Rome, Italy, who will enjoy a height advantage of nine centimeters towards Abraham, surely did not hold back today. With that kind of self-confidence, he might very well be a threat to Abraham, who wants to continue his unbeaten streak in Oldenburg.

Tony Thompson rested, ready to return

After consecutive KO wins over highly regarded David Price, followed by a decision loss to Kubrat Pulev on short notice, heavyweight Tony “The Tiger” Thompson has informed Fightnews.com that he’s rested and ready to get back in the ring. “I’m a well-rested Tony Thompson. I’m back in the gym. And taking that Pulev fight with such a short time in between fights definitely did me in. But a well-rested Tony Thompson with ample time to prepare for any opponent out there is a dangerous Tony Thompson. I feel good. I feel strong. And I’m looking for a fight. No more of this reaching out on Twitter or Facebook with bogus offers you’re not ready to back up.

Tijuana boxing goes pink

By Felipe Leon

As a way to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Tijuana’s Mayen Promotions once again presents a special all-female fight card this Wednesday night at the Las Pulgas night club in the heart of Tijuana’s Revolution Avenue. Last year, promoter Guillermo “Memo” Mayen pulled out all the stops as he tried to establish a Guinness world record when he featured a night full of ladies, from the fighters, to the announcers, trainers and referees as well as the princess of Mexico women’s boxing, Jackie Nava, as the interim boxing commissioner for the night. Mayen did not go all out this time but still opted to give the knowing Tijuana boxing audience a potential exciting night of boxing.

The fight card will be an international one when Westbury, New York’s by way of Jamaica Alicia “Slick) Ashley (19-9-1, 1KO) defends her WBC super-bantamweight title against hard hitting Mexican Zenny Sotomayor (10-5-2, 8KOs) of Los Mochis in a ten round championship contest. The forty-six year old Ashley is known as a superb boxer who captured the female 122 pound belt by defeating Christina Ruiz via unanimous decision back in 2011. Ashley has defended the title twice since, both times again by unanimous decisions, over Maria Elena Villalobos and Chanttall Martinez. (more…)

Murat: The time is now to beat Hopkins, clinching is the state of his game

German challenger Karo Murat says he likes his chances to be the one to derail 48-year-old IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins when they fight on Saturday night in Atlantic City. “I’m 30 years old now, and I’m physically and mentally on top of my game,” stated Murat in the lead up to the fight. “The time is now to beat Hopkins. When Hopkins fought Cloud, a lot of people already said that the time had come, that he’s going to lose and going to retire, but he schooled him and showed the world that he’s still ready and a good 48-year-old boxer. But I’m going to surprise a lot of people, and as I see it, he had his first pro fight in 1998 in Atlantic City. And so he has to see that the time has come. We are fighting again in Atlantic City, so it will be a good closing out for him to finally retire by the hands of mine.”

Murat also stated, “As a person, you see that [Hopkins] is growing old because of his gray hair and his gray beard. I saw in the fight versus Cloud that Bernard has pretty much the experience that none other boxer has, but you see that he’s just trying to get one punch or a one-two combination of it and then clinch. Clinching is the state of his game!”

When asked how he will stop Hopkins from clinching, Murat said, “I can’t say how I will do it, but I guarantee you that I will do it.”

Hara keeps Japanese 105lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Boxing Beat

Unbeaten ex-jockey aspirant, WBA#6/WBC#14/WBO#3/IBF#4 Ryuji Hara (16-0, 10 KOs), 105, kept his Japanese minimumweight belt as he came off the canvas in round three and dominated the following rounds to pound out a unanimous decision (96-91 twice and 95-92) over veteran southpaw Takashi Kunishige (25-10-2, only 2 KOs), 105, over ten clinch-studded rounds on Monday in Tokyo, Japan.

Hara was just careless only in round three, when he took Kunishige’s southpaw left and hit the deck, though quickly regaining his feet. From the next round on Hara maintained the pressure and whipped the challenger with effective right uppercuts, though Kunishige repeatedly applied his notorious hit-and-grab tactics, which cost a penalization twice in the seventh and tenth sessions.

Mundine to chase Mosley to USA; Shane paid $300K despite pull out; Aussie ring legend Jeff Fenech takes huge financial hit from the cancellation

Anthony Mundine and his team plan to follow Shane Mosley to the US in hopes of rescheduling the flight. “The fight is off for now, but it could be rescheduled. that’s what we’re working on,” Mundine said during a hastily called news conference at the Tony Mundine Gym in Sydney, Australia.

Meanwhile, Shane Mosley and his team are currently over the Pacific Ocean on Quantas flight 107. The plane is expected to arrive at LAX at around 6:45AM Wednesday morning.

Despite not fighting, Mosley will pocket $300,000, which was paid in advance per the contract and was nonrefundable. He was due the balance of $700,000 before the fight, which promoter Wlad Warton was unable to produce.

Boxing Hall of Famer and legendary Australian world champion Jeff Fenech stated that he personally put up the money to get Mosley to fight in Australia. “I gave him $460,000,” Fenech told AAP. “I certainly wouldn’t have done that if I thought the fight wasn’t going to go ahead because my guarantee was that when the fight went ahead, (with) the pay-per-view money and the pub and club money that I’d be paid back, but now it doesn’t look like it….Vlad Warton told me he needed $US300,000 as a start to getting here, then another $US100,000 for all his expenses, and a little more. So I accommodated for all that, and now they’ve gone home so I’m really left with nothing. It’s going to be a little bit tough for a while.” (more…)

Mosley-Mundine off

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

We can reveal Mosley checked out of his hotel last night with his entire team and moved to a second hotel closer to Sydney airport. There are reports his team used the move as a last-minute bluff in an attempt to extract cash from promoter Vlad Warton. Instead, they arrived at Sydney airport early this morning with the future Hall of Famer checking six bags and are expected to depart for Los Angeles later this morning. In another twist this morning, it appears the fight could be rescheduled for six weeks’ time with a new promoter, possibly Khoder Nasser. Mosley’s sparring partner Sergio Mora sent two angry tweets this morning, reading “FIGHT IS OFF!” and “Dirty, dirty fighters in this business.”

Sugar Shane Mosley is threatening to pull out of Wednesday’s clash against Anthony Mundine in Sydney, Australia, unless he receives a large percentage of his $1 million purse in advance. According to the The Daily Telegraph, the pre-fight press conference scheduled for today was cancelled and Mosley has boycotted several media commitments.
